Ardhagiri is a hill where Hanuman temple is located. The hill is situated in Aragonda village of Chittoor district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Etymology[edit]

The name Ardhagiri came from a myth related to Tretayuga, when Lord Hanuman was transporting Sanjeevani Mountain (mountain that consists of herbs for life), half of the mountain fell down at this place and hence, the name Ardhagiri. In the local language, it means Half Mountain (Ardhra=half, giri=mountain).[1]
